Harmonia Philosophical is dead. Long live Harmonia Philosophica!

Harmonia Philosophica exists for more than a decade now. There has been many years since it had a major revamp, but the time had finally come.

And just like that, everything changed.

New template that is more lean and modern. The old template was an old favourite one, but all things die at some point.

(And that adds more to the love we have for them)

New type of posts. From now on the articles will be of a more poetic type without any specific link to a news or scientific discovery article that they comments on. Anyway we had always been advocates of the irrational, so why stick to writing articles about something in such an ordinary way? (Of course posts already scheduled will be posted as scheduled)

(What is the point of writing with logic if you are to sound logical?)

Every moment all things change.

Every moment we change.

And yet, we stay the same.

There is nothing closer to eternity than the ephemeral…

Harmonia Philosophica is dead!

Long live Harmonia Philosophica!

FBA Episode 2: What to write about

So you made the decision to start writing.

The world is split in two categories of people: Creators and consumers.

You chose to be the first. Good for you!

But now that you did, there comes the first big decision that you must make: What to write about?

There exist millions and millions of possible things that can be the subject of a good blog/ site. From philosophy to cooking, from military aviation up to jokes for atheism and religion. How do you choose?

The answer: You do not!

If you already have made up your mind to write (see Episode 1), it is most probable (almost certain actually) that you have already made that decision without knowing it!

Wanting to write is always accompanied by the urge to write about something specific. Do not try to analyze what will have the greatest potential for more readers, or what is more viral these days. Don’t lose time trying to figure out what subject is the most promising when it comes to attracting viewers in your site and do not spend time thinking what subject would be more amazing to show to your fiancé (or fiancée).

Creating content is all about you!

And your heart already knows what it loves.

Just stop thinking and listen to your self.

(I know what I like…)

This is your subject!

No matter how weird or niche this subject might be, the basic advantage is that it is what you like! And this makes it not only an excellent choice but also the only choice at hand! You can only sustain writing about what you really love. Anything else is just work. But with blogging you want to enjoy yourself! And what better way to do that than by writing about things you enjoy writing about? (Yes, this is a tautology and that is why it is true – read more Harmonia Philosophica about this)

And who knows…

You passion for what you love might one day convert that small blog into a multi-million dollar business.

(Although I would never recommend that, but we will speak more on that in another episode)

FBA Episode 1: The beginning

How does every journey starts but with a first step? And how important that first step is cannot be exaggerated enough. Whether you do it or not will determine whether you will be called a writer or not. Whether or not you take it will determine if you will be a creator instead of just a consumer of creations.

So before everything else, one should do the obvious: Start writing!

It is as easy as it sounds. And exactly because of that, it is so difficult!

Many people dream of writing but never do. There exist a ton of excuses not to. It takes courage to overcome that first hurdle and doing so is solely on you. There is no magic pill, no magic recipe, no magic advice. If you cannot just open your computer and start writing then this series of articles is not for you. If you cannot open Word or any other writing application and start producing content then there is no need to discuss advice in good blogging and writing.

So that’s it.

If you have already started writing and you have content already created then you have successfully passed the first stage for successful blogging.

If not, then do so immediately.
